National Heritage Board’s (NHB) Museum Roundtable Lunar New Year Hongbao Campaign 2023 returns with limited edition red packet designs featuring cute rabbits.
From 6 January to 3 February 2023, museum visitors will be able to collect a pack of unique red packet designs at each of the 39 participating museums, heritage institutions and galleries, while stocks last.
Museum Roundtable Lunar New Year Hongbao 2023
Each Museum Roundtable Lunar New Year Hongbao 2023 pack contains eight pieces of red packets and is limited to one pack per visitor.
This year, Children’s Museum Singapore will be participating in the Hongbao Campaign for the first time. It is the newest member of the Museum Roundtable, having joined in October 2022.
This year, NHB will again be producing a limited edition collector’s album available for sale.
The collector’s album was first produced in 2022 and was sold out within hours of its launch.
This year, NHB decided to bring back the collector’s album in a larger quantity this year – 450 albums will be sold as compared to 350 albums in 2022.
Each collector’s album will contain two full sets of 39 MR red packet designs for the Year of the Rabbit, and a special edition design for NHB (i.e. a total of 80 pieces of red packets), displayed in a customised album.
The NHB design has been included into the album this year, in celebration of NHB’s 30th anniversary. The red packets in the collector’s album will be different from the red packets available for collection at participating MR members with the former featuring a pink background, and the latter featuring a red background.
Museum-Hopping to Collect Free Red Packets
Mr Alvin Tan, Deputy Chief Executive (Policy & Community), NHB said, “In response to positive public feedback over the past few years, NHB has increased the number of red packets available for collection and brought back the popular collector’s album this year. We hope that this campaign will encourage Singaporeans and tourists to experience the fun of collecting the free red packets, and through museum-hopping, discover more about our vibrant and diverse museum scene during this festive period.”
